Campbellford Colts Gordie Gilders in Wayne Gretzky’s Commercial!
Submitted By Nancy Boivin on Tuesday, December 24, 2019
It all started when Powerhouse Casting Company was looking for a slim, blonde hockey player to play Wayne Gretzky in a commercial.

With over 50,000 applicants sent into Powerhouse Casting Company,
Gordie worked hard and went to numerous tryouts for the position to play Wayne Gretzky as a young child.
Gordie and his family were very excited & proud after he was chosen for the part!

Campbellford Colts & our home town of Campbellford are very proud
to see Gordie in the Commercial that will be aired on the TV during the World Junior Hockey Game on Boxing Day!
